"I knew that if I allowed fear to overtake me, my journey was doomed. Fear, to a great extent, is born of a story we tell ourselves, and so I chose to tell myself a different story ... I decided I was safe. I was strong. I was brave ... I simply did not let myself become afraid. Fear begets fear. Power begets power."

-- Cheryl Strayed, Wild

Less leftovers and more up-to-date photos to come,
